Everything was a rocket.
The problem with Cunningham was that Buddy Ryan drafted him and had no interest in teaching him how to play the QB position. He wanted a running back who could throw deep once and a while.
He proceeded to use him in a way that hindered his development and caused him to be injured often.
I think it inspired Shanahan to get his QB killed as well, because he's doing his best to emulate how Ryan ruined Randall with RGIII.
